Take Class With Our March Cover Star Jerron Herman

Dancer Jerron Herman is all about welcoming. As writer Meredith Fages wrote in Dance Magazine's March cover story:

While he creates primarily through the lenses of Blackness and disability, he creates for everyone. "There's nothing in what I do that you cannot consume; you just choose what to eat," he says. An interdisciplinary artist who works in dance, text and visual storytelling, Herman makes art because, he says, "my multiplicity wants to have a conversation with your multiplicity."

Now, he's welcoming all dancers to take his free virtual class on Dance Media Live! On Monday, March 29, at 4 pm Eastern, he'll be sharing an inside look at the phrases and concepts he's developed for his works and talking about his experiences in the field. Topics will range from disability aesthetics to researching for dance—with some fun anecdotes sprinkled in.

Click here to register, and submit any questions you'd like to ask him. All levels of dancers are welcome. The class and discussion will include live captions and ASL interpretation.

Friday Film Break: Kyle Abraham's "When We Fell" for New York City Ballet

For his third work on New York City Ballet, choreographer Kyle Abraham has created a quietly haunting new dance film called "When We Fell." Abraham told Roslyn Sulcas of The New York Times that a peaceful winter residency at Kaatsbaan Cultural Park deeply influenced the material, and it shows in the work's spare beauty and elegant sense of calm.

Available for free as part of NYCB's digital season until April 22, the film was co-directed by cinematographer Ryan Marie Helfant. The cast includes India Bradley, Jonathan Fahoury, Christopher Grant, Claire Kretzschmar, Lauren Lovette, Taylor Stanley, KJ Takahashi and Sebastian Villarini-Velez.
